  • Singapore Noodles

    23rd March 2017

    Singapore noodles are one of my favourite things to eat; this dish was always something I’d buy as take away years ago if I felt like something spicy.  I’ve never made it though!  So last night I gave it a go and it was delicious.

You can store them in the fridge for a few days for lunches too. Recipe[read more...]
